Do you know this song?

I was practising for worship tomorrow with a very young and talented pianist. During a short break, I shared with her some stories and songs of the good ol' days.

I sang her this song. How many of you actually know it? I can't even find it on!

Christ is the Lord
Christ is the Lord of the smallest atom,
Christ is the Lord of outer space,
Christ is the Lord of the constellations,
Christ is the Lord of every place;
Of the furthest star, Of the coffee bar,
Of the length of the Berlin Wall;
Of the village green, Of the Asian scene
Christ is the Lord of all;

Christ is the Lord of the human heart beat,
Christ is the Lord of every breath,
Christ is the Lord of a man's existence,
Christ is the Lord of Life and death.

Christ is the Lord of our thoughts and feelings,
Christ is the Lord of all we plan,
Christ is the Lord of man's decision,
Christ is the Lord of total man;
In the local street, Where the people meet,
In the church or the nearby hall;
In the factory, in the family,

Christ is the Lord of all;
Christ is the Lord of our love and courtship,
Christ is the Lord of man and wife,
Christ is the Lord of the things we care for,
Christ is the Lord of all our life.

  7. This hymn was taught to us by The Late Rev. Dr. D.T. Niles in 1966 at the St. Peters Methodist Church, Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Since then it has been one of my favourites.

  8. Hi Lucky,

  9. It was during 1979 one of my friend sitting next to me used to sing this song. On and off i used to search this song. I feel very happy to see it here now. Really happy. Now I have to search for the video.

  11. My favourite song in the 1960s, we loved to sing it in the YFC Bible Club meetings in Singapore. Am totally surprised that people still sing this song today? Those days the Berlin Wall was a symbol of tyranny that mocked us.

    1. Haha...we don't sing it anymore. And I didn't know about the reference to the Berlin Wall, thanks!
